Oak Trees in Die Laan

Posted on Mon June 29, 2020.

The Avenue, as also Stellenbosch as a whole, has become synonomous with Oak Trees.

The local importance of the oak trees is evident as far back as 1887 when specific rules for their conservation were formulated: that property owners may not remove or damage them in any way.
The oaks of the Avenue were declared historical monuments in 1950.
